Sigma has revealed three new lenses for mirrorless cameras: the 35mm F1.2 DG DN Art, the 14-24mm F2.8 DG DN Art and the 45mm F2.8 DG DN Contemporary.
This comes alongside Sigma’s huge surprise Sigma fp announcement. That is a huge reveal. But it’s also exciting that Sigma’s adding three new lenses for mirrorless cameras into its Global Vision line. So, without further ado, let’s take some time and look at all three of these lenses:
Sigma 35mm F1.2 DG DN Art
Sigma’s 35mm F1.2 is the first F1.2 large aperture prime lens to join the Sigma Global Vision line. It’s also Sigma’s first wide-angle lens with F1.2 maximum aperture for the full-frame Sony E-mount and L-mount system. By the looks of it, the lens seems to offer great resolution and bokeh effects. Expect the lens to perform best with environmental portraiture, weddings and on-location shoots.
The 35mm F1.2 Art features three SLD glass elements and three aspherical lenses. Also, the lens includes a double-sided aspherical lens that’s arranged in a lens build of 17 elements in 12 groups.
If you’re wondering if this lens is better fitted for video shooting or stills, Sigma says that it works equally for both. The lens features the large Hyper Sonic Motor and the focus ring is driven by the focus-by-wire system. The aperture ring is also mounted with a de-click function.
The Sigma 35mm F1.2 DG DN Art will be available in L-mount and Sony E-mount in late July for $1,499.
Sigma 14-24mm F2.8 DG DN Art
Described as a lens for astrophotography, the Sigma 14-24mm F2.8 DG DN Art is the “ultimate large-diameter, wide-angle zoom lens” for full-frame mirrorless cameras, according to Sigma.
“The uniform rendering performance and outstanding edge to edge resolution is perfect for capturing the weak light emitted by the stars at night,” says Sigma.
Other notable features include one FLD glass and five SLD glass elements which are arranged to suppress edge to edge chromatic aberration. Also, there are three aspherical lenses. In addition, the lens has a stepping motor that should allow for “high speed, quiet” autofocus.
The Sigma 14-24mm F2.8 DG DN Art will be available in L-mount and Sony E-mount in late August for $1,399.
Sigma 45mm F2.8 DG DN Contemporary
Meant for smaller full-frame mirrorless cameras, the Sigma 45mm F2.8 DG DN Contemporary lens looks to be easy to carry and portable. The lens would fit for a traveling photographer. It also offers a minimum focusing distance of 24 cm.
The Sigma 45mm F2.8 DG DN Contemporary will be available in L-mount and Sony E-mount. It will be out late July for $549.
